As a yoga teacher he developed his own technique and encourages the combination of the practice of extreme sports with meditation. It establishes the balance between playing and staying. In both activities the ultimate goal is to live here and now, to play here and now, to stay here and now.

Margarete Von Glenck grew up in Zurich and has been fascinated with all kind of movements since early age. This interest guided her to study the science of human movement at ETH.

Integrating Yoga into her daily live, she obtained a degree in alternative medicine and shares as a therapist her holistic sight of health.

Her teaching is about discovering what yoga develops in each individual and as a teacher always being a student. She emphasizes on alignment, inspiration, passion and likes to playfully challenge the students to let them find their inherent potential.
